Though she has not come to the attention of listeners outside Brazil, Paula Santoro is recognized within her country as a singer who has carried on the tradition of artists like Elis Regina, Beth Carvalho, Nara Leão, Maria Bethânia and other contemporary vocalists who form a brilliant constellation in the firmament of Brazilian music. She tells stories bristling with heartfelt emotion. She is a modern griot in whose soul the history of her country stirs, moving her very spirit as she sings in her own inimitable manner.

“Keyboardist Rafael Vernet embraces the vintage sounds of Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos, painting engaging harmonies, infectious comps and grooving left-hand bass lines…” Jeff Potter – DownBeat Magazine “
